 Let A be a set of individuals (members). A family is a collections of sets of powerset(A) (without the emptyset);
When every two set in this family have a nonempty intersection, the family is an intersecting family, or a shell (my wording).
The sets inside a shell are gangs;
A pivot is an individual common to all sets of a family. Its family is a stared family.
The trail of a family F is another family that contains all the subsets of the sets of F; ex: {1, 2} , {1, 3, 4 } produces the trail {1}, {2}, {3} {1,2} , {1,3}, {1,4}, {1,3,4}.
A star is a family that has a pivot and contains some of its trail, i.e. those sets in the trail that contain the pivot ex: {1}, {1,2}, {1,3},{1,2.3}, {1,4} has the pivot 1.
A perfect shell is a shell that has the same cardinality with the stars generated by each member ex
 {1,2},{2,3},{1,3}  =  {1},{1,2},{1,3}  = Star(1) =  {2},{2,1},{2,3}  = Star(2) =  {3},{3,1},{3,2}  = Star(3)
I think it is funny to search for perfect shells.

 Subject: union product Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:38 pm  
 Take A = powerset (1, 2, 3) Take B = {a, b}, {a, c}, {b, c}, {a, b, c}
Take A xu B, the union product of A and B := the family of all reunions of two sets, first in A and the second in B.
{ 1, 2, 3, a, b, c } is optional, and we get a 3132 perfect shell on 6 members, which contains the 21 previous shell. In fact we have 3x7 = 21 and (3+1)x(7+1)1 = 31
ab bc ac abc ab1 bc1 ac1 abc1 ab2 bc2 ac2 abc2 ab3 bc3 ac3 abc3 ab12 bc12 ac12 abc12 ab23 bc13 ac23 abc23 ab13 bc23 ac13 abc13 ab123 bc123 ac123 (abc123 is optional)
==== Until now ==== Let HP[n] denote the perfect shell built by previous method (vivat Maple)(HP means Half Power)
HP[2]* = {a} HP[2] = {a} {a,b} HP[3]* = {a, b}, {b, c}, {a, c} HP[3] = {a, b}, {b, c}, {a, c}, {a, b, c} HP[4]* = {a, b}, {a, c}, {a, d}, {a, b, c} , {a, b, d}, {a, c, d}, {b, c, d} HP[4] = HP[4]* and {a, b, c, d} and so on.
i) A method to build new perfect shells is to take the union product of a perfect shell with a power set. Example: HP[3]* xu Powerset [3]* > the previous 21 perfect shell.
ii) Another method is by factorization, taking a = b in a shell;
iii) Also, by changing small sets in the HP series with their complementaries we get a bundle of new perfect shells. The extrema is a new series of half powers:  for n odd, take all subsets larger than (n+1)/2  for n even, take all subsets larger than n/2 + 1, then add half of the n/2subsets : for each nonintersecting couple, choose one of the couple.
